VLC for Windows has been updated for Windows 10, now featuring a new name. Having previously been called VLC for Windows 8, the app is now referred to as VLC for Windows Store.
“It’s been a long time since we updated the VLC app on the Windows Store. Last update was released on May, 19th, and April 23rd on Windows Phone. Today, we’re releasing an update on VLC for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. It has been optimized to run flawlessly on Windows 10. This new version brings tons of changes and bugfixes,” app developer Thomas Nigro stated in an official blog post.
So what’s new in this major update? First of all, the user interface has received a major overhaul to match the new Windows 10 style. The app is supposed to run faster on lower-end devices like the Surface RT and Lumia 520/620. There are new animations and a beta version of the Win2D component. The app also features improvements to the music library, video library, search, and more.
The update also introduces a mini-player, which works amazing on Windows 10. You can head over here to read the full blog post and download the app update from the link below.
